down feather duvet

I’m slowly catching up on blog post. This manicure was from around the 16th of July and I only remember that because I was trying to make my nails look cool for the kiddies where I volunteer. One little asks me every week what I’ve got on. A las they did not turn out well.

essence splash


essence splash stampingStamping hasn’t really been on my radar for a while. 1) I don’t have time for it. 2) Testing out shop products is more important. Which is why I got really annoyed with all this smudging. Never have I had this problem before, and it wasn’t the stamping either so frankly I don’t know!

The base for this was essence splash which nail loopy sent me. She is totally attuned to my favourite polish colours.

Weird title for a blog post I know but plain old feathers is pants. Plus I love my bed therefor I love my duvet….maybe a little too much.

Thank you.

Hello there loveys,

I’m a bit behind with my blogging. I usually blog as I do my nails, but studying has got in the way. Luckily my dissertation has been handed in and I only have 3 assignments left, but sadly no motivation.

zeus shimmerYes you are seeing sinful colors Zeus. My very first lemming I may add. Its stunning with all that shimmer….and mine ALLLL mine. Thank you PM for making my dreams come true.

I decided to pair it with tarastalons holosphere from the fan collaboration collection. The formula was an issue for me, but I’ve added a bit of thinner in since. Frankly it’s a beautiful gentle holographic infused duochrome, and I love the colour! In my adventures to get better at stamping I used my new MM bird plate, and a england lady of the lake to stamp it with.

sinful colors zeusNow on another note I’m exhausted mentally lately, so I might ramble on because lets face it this is my slice of the net. I need a holiday!

Thank you.

Birthday present’s and a little bit of hauling

You guys know I like to slip in the odd haul posts here and there, and I thought I would share my birthday things with you all. This year I was incredibly lucky and very spoiled by my friends and family; not that they will see this, but another thank you to you all.

box of goodiesMy box of nail related presents in all its glory! One of the girls at university got me a mini soap & glory hand food, as she knows I’m so obsessed with my nails.

present from sSaira got me what I like to call the spring package ;). She got me the mint green texture from m&s we had chatted about before, which is perfect because I love the colour and I’m a recent texture lover. MM17 with all its glorious ladybirds and dragonflies. When I was a kid I used to love seeing dragonflies hovering over the water. Saira also got me swan form the new models own collection. Now I don’t know whether to use it or keep it for easter Sunday, as it’s a big deal we all go to my grandparents (in-laws) for the afternoon and dinner. Thank you Saira!

present from h

Hannah killed a huge lemming of mine with Illamasqua facet as you already know, and frankly it’s making me want more from the range. The formula from them is so easy to use. Look at that SHIMMMMMMMMER. Thank you Hannah!

presents from j Now my PM sent me a box full of blue polish, and killed 2 MAJOR lemmings with a splash of purple. Jenna sent me paint shop polish white christmas, and a sallys mini. Lets get this glow on the road like my PM. Sea-ing stars from Sally Hansen, and 2 the lady varnishes polish. I was super excited about those two, as I’m always seeing the indie line pop up on Jenna’s blog. Pestering peeves is a thermal, and I am loving it. us polishBOOOOM, splat and kapooow,  because yes you are looking at sinful colors treasure chest and Zeus. Zeus has been on my wish list since I made one. Now I’m incredibly lucky because she gave me these out of her own stash. That right there is love. Probably doesn’t help that I always want unobtainable.

The milani will be in action to help make decals of my own once I buy a mat. PM swears by it for making her own decals. I also received Finger paints colorful dream flakie, and I have to say I really like the bottles. The lid is a perfect fit for my hand. Now that sounds a bit crazy, but it is.

Thank you PM.

Now onto the things I’ve hauled myself.

IMG_4612Messy Mansion plates have been on my wish list for a while, and with a little help from Saira I got some.

presents to meIn my task to get a back up of #party from Tara I snuck in glory as its a mint shimmer, and you know I have to own that. From her fan collab collection I got holosphere which is a metallic lilac scattered holographic. It’s unique within my collection.

Rainbow Connections had a money off code, and well me and Saira together happened. That should say it all haha. Ocean tears was another wish lister, and after the storm was too pretty to resist.

present from m &d My mom and dad surprised me with this O.P.I holder. Frankly I think it’s super cool.

Thank you for reading.

What a beaut

One of my birthday presents was from Hannah, and boy did she smash a lemming. When Mr Postman delivered it I actually had no clue what it was seen as Illamasqua send them in plain black boxes. I also got MM17 from Saira! So that obviously had to be used asap as well. The dragon fly image is beautiful.

Now this manicure needed the light box to show its beauty, but I haven’t got the time or had it lately to set it all up. So I apologise that colour your seeing isn’t it’s true colour.

Illasmaqua & nopiOn my accent nail I have NOPI sing you like a bee not that you can see it much due to my dodgy stamping .

illamasqua facetOne of the girls on my course I’ve recently started talking to has actually started to notice my nails, and she really liked this manicure and my nail shape. She was examining them to see if they were my real nails haha.

illamasqua and messy mansion stampingNow I have to say this shade should be in everyones stash, because it’s such a beauty!!!

Thank you Hannah and Saira!
